Senator Elizabeth Warren Endorses Michelle Wu’s 2021 Boston Mayoral Bid

Released: January 09, 2021

Boston, MA - Today, Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts has announced her support for Boston City Councilor At-Large Michelle Wu’s people-powered mayoral campaign to deliver bold, urgent leadership to City Hall.

“Michelle has always been a fighter—as one of my students, as a Boston city councilor, and now as a candidate for Mayor,” said Senator Warren. “She is a tireless advocate for families and communities who feel unseen and unheard. Michelle is not just a woman full of good ideas and a passionate heart, she is a woman who gets out and does the work that needs to be done to make a difference in people's lives. Bostonians can count on Michelle’s bold, progressive leadership to tackle our biggest challenges, such as recovering from the pandemic, dismantling systemic racism, prioritizing housing justice, revitalizing our transportation infrastructure, and addressing the climate crisis.”

“Senator Warren is a champion for working families in Boston and around the country, and is a personal hero and friend of mine,” said Michelle Wu. “As we face some of our toughest challenges as a city—the destruction of the pandemic, an economy that leaves so many behind, and deeply rooted educational inequities and racial injustice— I am profoundly grateful for Senator Warren’s partnership and honored to have her support.”

This endorsement builds on the enthusiasm of the campaign’s strong multigenerational, multicultural coalition of grassroots support from residents, community activists and leaders, as well as over a dozen municipal elected officials from across Greater Boston and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
